I got a tip yesterday to watch a site we call FASS (it tells us all we need to know about our medicines) because there it also showed what pharmacy had the particular medicine I wanted. Back in the days when there was a monopoly on pharmacies we always knew that we could get the medicine we needed and it was also much cheaper and even those living way far more at the outskirts of the world wouldn’t have too far to a pharmacy. Now they have loads of pharmacies in the cities and very few in the countryside. The politicians said it would be so much cheaper for us and just as easy to find medicines if we just skipped the state monopoly on pharmacies. We and they knew it was a lie but they did it anyway.
Anyway I checked the site and the only place reasonable close to my home was the other one in the village where I was yesterday. I called the company to check and they were kind enough to save it for me just because I had such a distance to drive. My vet is really good but not especially modern so I still get the paper prescriptions and not the internet prescriptions almost all other vets use now days. The pharmacy was kind enough to keep my paper prescription and they’ll order both the medicines Nova needs and I’ll just have to go there and pick it up when I need it. They said they could ship it home to me but I said that since I’ll have vacation by then I just as well could drive there anyway.
Nova wasn’t happy about me putting anything in her ear but didn’t make a sound even though I had to get it as deep down into her ear as I could. She had stayed in the cottage while I drove away but the two others were in te dog house/ yard. I thought she needed some calm and quiet because she’s not especially well. She had refuse to eat her food this morning but I placed it in the kitchen when I drove away and she had eaten it and kept it when I came home. Now I’m not sure how to do because this medicine can make her throw up these first times (that should stop after a while though). Should I give her food before the pills or after? It takes around an hour before it happens so I guess it would be better if I gave her the pills after she had eaten?
I brought my camera with me when I drove away but it has been raining so much that I didn’t want to go out of the car 🙂 I did however stop at a garden center to get something to have on the entrance stairs. Most was of course sold out but I found some nice Impatiens, we call them Flitiga Lisa (Diligent Lisa) but I think they are called Busy Lizzie in English. I would rather have had her cousin Lyckliga Lotta (Happy Lotta) New Guinea impatiens in English because it grows much higher which I like. Both are easy to sow so perhaps I should do that next spring and have a flower bed with both of them, they don’t like direct sunlight but I have plenty of shade here.
Albin is annoyed with me because I won’t make it stop raining 🙂 It is mostly heavy showers and short periods with almost sunshine in between. I really dislike this weather because it just makes the ticks and flies happy. I do hope we soon will get a draught again. I know many wells are dry now and those who has one loves this rain but I’m just so tired of flies and ticks now. I’m now almost constantly walking around wearing a mosquito hat, I rather do that than go insane 🙂 🙂
Normally this Saturday every year I would shout “Finally Vacation” but not this year. I’ll have to work one more week before I get it. We are three painters at work and it was my time to take the later vacation this year. The factory will be closed three weeks and I’ll have one week after it opens up again. I will actually work on Monday week 29 too because I’ll wash the paint box with heavier stuff to get it as good as possible this autumn. Normally I wash it once a week with distilled water but every six months something much stronger is b´needed. This time I’ll use thinner so I brought my breathing mask from the neighbor factory because no work is worth melting ones brain with fumes 🙂
It is time to make myself something to eat, I think I’ll have Wiener sausages and french fries today. I was thinking of buying a hamburger when I went to get the medicine but 10:20 am is just too early for me to have something like that.
Have a great day!
